| | 8800 -- A free GPS solution?
Please Login to Remove!
A friend of mine has a smartphone. His phone connects to a gps via bluetooth and has mapping software that runing on his phone that provides turn by turn directions just like a dedicated GPS unit.
Can the Blackberry 8800 work the same way? I see products like Tele-nav where you have to pay a monthly fee for the maps, and they give you software to run on the 8800 that will give turn by turn directions, but I really don't want to pay $10/month for this feature. Because the 8800 has a GPS built in, and it can store information on a SD card, this should definitely be possible. Is this the way Blackberry maps works, or is that a monthly fee as well?
